Carol Vorderman joins LBC to host weekend show
LBC has hired Carol Vorderman to front a new regular Sunday programme, starting this weekend.
In recent weeks, Carol has been a guest presenter on the station – her new show will air 4-7pm.
She recently left BBC Radio Wales after five years following a disagreement over new BBC social media guidelines.
Carol says: “I’m delighted to be joining LBC and the phenomenal stable of powerful voices on the station.
“More than ever, live radio is an incredibly important platform for news, so I’m looking forward to returning to a medium that I love. And what a year 2024 is going to be for news and politics! On Sunday afternoon, I’ll be using my voice – as you might expect – to cause a commotion.
“I won’t be shy to say things that others won’t, and I’ll hold the corrupt to account without fear or favour. And obviously I can’t wait to hear from the listeners – all of it, without apology or embarrassment, their worries, their joys, their ideas.
“To quote Bob Dylan: ‘the times they are a-changin’ and I can’t wait to get started – bring it on!”
Tom Cheal, LBC’s Managing Editor added: “Now more than ever, listeners want candid, intelligent debate where people are free to air their views openly.
“LBC’s callers provide a unique insight into what people right across the country are thinking and feeling, and I’m delighted Carol will be debating the big issues with them each week.
“Carol’s straight-talking and incisive opinion make her the perfect fit alongside what is already the UK’s best team of speech broadcasters, and I know she will help ensure LBC continues to lead the way as the home of the UK’s best opinion-led broadcasting.”
